Development in the Lifespan

The research on human development takes a multi-disciplinary approach that spans traditional psychology subdisciplines and involves about fifteen research labs studying infant and child development, cognitive aging, social development and health disparities in the adolescence, genetic determinants of development, quantitative modeling, and animal models of sensory system development and aging.
